Its true! Kid cured of cancer with alternative therapy!

I mean, its hard to get get more 'alternative' than a GMO HIV virus, rite?

A million people have been forwarding me a link to this unbelievable story:

Its totally true, and its something Ive written about here at ERV before. It is incredible.

The day Im waiting for, is when this 'incredible' approach to treating a disease... is absolutely mundane.

I've had this video thrown my way all day too by friends and family both. It's viral...pardon the pun! I will vouche that I was present when we (you, me, Curtis) discussed "can't wait until someday when we fight the 'HIV with the HIV'" Totally give you credit lady...the day will come!

Would this be less effective against solid tumors? I can't imagine "teaching" T-cells to go after lung cells would be a good thing for someone with lung cancer.

If someone comes up with a treatment to get rid of melanosomes, it will undoubtedly have some unpleasant effects besides turning me into an albino. But compared to melanoma?

"Dr. June said his team hopes to use T-cells against solid tumors, including some that are very hard to treat, like mesothelioma and ovarian and pancreatic cancer. But possible adverse reactions are a real concern, he said, noting that one of the protein targets on the tumor cells is also found on membranes that line the chest and abdomen. T-cell attacks could cause serious inflammation in those membranes and mimic lupus, a serious autoimmune disease."

It's an example of that old saying: What do you call alternative medicine that works? Medicine.

What do you think about oncolytic viruses which are in testing, JX-594 from Jennerex?
These viruses are programmed to infect only cancerous cells and also send out a message while inside the cell to tell white blood cells to attack.

I think it's great that the work is being done and especially great it is being done where I live.
